Romans 12:9-21

Loving Divine Family,

We gather in your abundant fields and vineyards. We rejoice as we harvest together. Your word to us is clear–to share our abundance with others. We desire to respond to your call with all our being. The Intruder tells us to withhold from those who we would consider our enemies and to lash out in vengeance. But you tell us to extend patience and love.

Companion God, thank you for creating us to be in relationship with you and others. Thank you for the relationships that reflect your loving goodness and kindness. May we bless each other and share your abundant love.

I hear your guidance for abundant living today, O Creator, and thank you for…

All are welcome in your garden. It is not for us to judge or to choose who receives your generosity and grace. We will not withhold your grace from others. We will give out of our abundance.

With joy we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
